Bunny time!

I want a rabbit.

I grew up having rabbits as pets. But for some reason, they keep coming to tragic demises under my care.

When I was four, I had two rabbits, Maple and Blondo. Maple ate Blondo. It was very sad.

When I was six, I had a rabbit, Miles, who drowned (his outdoor cage was next to our creek, which flooded).

When I was seven, I had another rabbit, Wabbit, who lived in the same cage and during a similar storm was struck by lightning and died.

When I was eleven, I had a rabbit named Ivory who was eaten by a fox.

When I was twelve I had a rabbit, Oreo, that got stuck behind our fridge and died.

When I was eighteen, I had a rabbit, Murphy, who attempted to run away but got stuck in our metal backyard fence and died.

When I was twenty-two I had a rabbit named Chuyia who was eaten by a hawk. (Chuyia had been tied to a tree for some exercise).

When I was twenty-four, I had a rabbit, Dusty, who ran away from home (she escaped from her leash on the tree) and we never heard from her again.

When I was twenty-five (one month ago or so) I tried to raise two baby wild rabbits, who eventually died two days later of starvation.

So clearly I have problems raising rabbits. But that doesn't stop me from loving them. They are my favorite animal.

Here are my two most recent rabbits:

Chuyia before the hawk ate her.

Dusty before she ran away.

Here are some rabbits I wish were mine:

I am not a big fan of animals but rabbits seem cute to be a pet :)

When I see a rabbit, I can't help but think of Watership Down.
But seriously, rabbits scare me. (Except Peter Rabbit and Bugs Bunny, they're mucho cute!) I don't know why. I think it's those really big ears, or the fact that they hop and don't walk. Weird, I know, but so so so true.

Good luck on getting a new rabbit though!

aw, rabbits are cute!

The Haute-Shopper said...

Oh no, those bunny stories of yours are so tragic! But I love bunnies too. When I was walking through Barcelona, there was one street that was selling only pets - mainly bunnies and I was almost tempted to get some. The pics are adorable... I prefer the ones with the big droopy ears :) Maegan said...

they're so cute and soft and cuddly ...get another one :)

Sophia said...

Maple ATE Blondo?! That's awful!
All my sympathies for your rabbit woes. :( I love bunnies too. One of my friends has a bunch, and every time I go to her house I wish I could take one home (My mother is pretty much anti-pets.)

jamie said...

hey thanks for your comment :D

but holy crap bunnies eating other bunnies?!? that's so awful :[ sorry about your previous bad (actually horrible!) luck with being a rabbit owner, but id say the best bet is to keep them inside, in a cage, and train them to roam around in one small room at a time (not outdoors or anywhere around fences, as they easily try to escape through fence bars and will die). ive had my bunny for about 3yrs now and i love him to pieces :D

josie(bean) said...

woops, sorry that was me on that last comment...weird sign in

Imogen said...

I like rabbits. They are probably my favourite animal after cats. I can't believe how big that last rabbit is and I love the fluffy one.
